    Hi everyone, I was just looking through the BB Social Zone and I found this. I'm sorry for randomly commenting and being so late. I hope it doesn't bother anyone? This is an interesting thread though, we should have more of these. Here's my answers:

    1. Favourite colour?: Teal/Aqua although I like a lot of colours.
    2. Fail-Safe way to make you smile?: Music, all animals, etc.
    3. Favourite animal?: Don't have one, I love ALL animals equally, minus poisonous ones of course!
    4. State where you were born/live?: I was born in VIC, then lived in TAS since about 2005 I think? Then moved back to VIC and lived here ever since I believe, from what I remember?
    5. Dogs or Cats?: Both but I've never had a Cat since my parents are allergic unfortunately so as much as I love both, Dogs I guess.
    6. Favourite movie/TV show?: My favourite movie is The Departed. My favourite TV show is a British Comedy from the 70's called Are You Being Served? I don't watch many movies and TV though but I also like Becker, Frasier is OK, Everybody Loves Raymond, and The King Of Queens, Have You Been Paying Attention?, and probably others.
    7. Android, Apple or Windows?: Don't know, never used an Android and I only have a family laptop with Windows and an iPad. Both are alright.
    8. Favourite activity?: Don't know, maybe listening to music and watching music stuff online (some of which is funny)?
    9. Something you're passionate about?: Standing up for mental health, my love for music, and other things I can't think of right now.

    Freebie question? - can't think of one.

    Thanks everyone, I hope no one minds me commenting here late and sorry for my long confusing answers.
